5 stars are not because he swore clearly they are for sound quality.

This is a weird show in that the first set is much stronger and much more interesting than the second. The second set, however, still repays a listen. China>Rider gets the job done, with Bob exaggerating his parts to comical yet frightening effect. I'm a Terrapin fan, and this version is a solid one, above average as 80s cosmic turtles go. Spoonful is a nice surprise out of space, but the rough transition from Throwing Stones into Black Peter takes the energy down a notch. Lovelight, of course, reintroduces some spunk (listen to the crowd eat it up!) but this show isn't a very smooth ride. One of the things I listen for in a good show is what I call "mood" and this show struggles to latch on to one.
I was tempted to give this show three stars, but the quality of the recording brings it up to four.
Subject: Have upgrades!
Subject: Wonderful Bird Song
Subject: SBD please?
But, again, WHERE IS THE CRISP SBD (we know it's out there)? ;-)
Subject: check out brent
I'm surprised the boys let him on in this condition.
check out the Guitar Work in BirdSong, Jerry produces some bird chirping noises then samples them back. (heard this in a couple of other shows too)
Subject: great show
